philly tips @ 11:40 pm

muffinslinger:
ok, caught U2 in philly last night and i'm still high as a kite, everyone who's waiting- oh man are they going to knock your socks off. blows elevation out of the water. any way i've got some philly tips. getting a camera in should be easy. i set the metal detectors off and the guard just waved me threw with a have a good show. biggest tip is: park in center city philly. i parked at the independence mall area and took the subway out to the arena. why do such a thing? you've got 20,000 people all getting in their cars and hitting the road at one time, traffic is unreal. take the subway in and out, you totally avoid all the frustration. don't bother with kings of leon. water was running $3.50, beer was $5.50. usual mile long line at the ladies room. oh yeah look for the M+M hand outs- free chocolate bars.

OK Beer is 5.50? In Chicago it was 7.50 for a Beer. 15 bucks for a Cranberry Vodka. I ended up spending 52.50 on alcohol. INSANE.

I was there... unbelieveable show! Better than the 3 shows I saw from Elevation.

I am pissed I didn't bring my camera! I had GA tickets and they peeked in my bag and swept me with the metal detector. Oh well!

I MIGHT be able to get Oct 16th tickets. Whee!!!

Mixed drinks were $6.50 each... and we drank a whole bunch!

The security guy didn't look in my bag at all! I guess I only look suspicious when I fly alone at the airport!

Def take the subway in, that's what I did.. and buy your return tokens when you get off, instead of waiting in line with a million people when the show is over! :)
